Celebration of Channukah

Celebration of Channukah



The central element of Channukh celebration is the lighting of the Channukiah, a special Channukah menorah. Unlike the seven branched menorah, the Chanukah menorah has nine branches. Eight of these are for each of the eight days of Channukah and one, called the Shamash (helper) is used to light the other eight. This ninth light is usually elevated from the other eight so as to distinguish it from the others.



One each of the eight nights of… Continue

Biblical Law for Today?

Dear Dr Trimm,



Through the rcg-forum I was forwarded interesting material purporting to originate with you on "Works of the Law" and "Under the Law". Apparently you claim that these two phrases were heresies in OT times already. If that is so it explains some dubious Pauline scriptures.



Could I ask you to make more details accessible to me..... What interests me particularly at this stage is whether there are clear references in the OT that these two phrases were… Continue

The Kingdom Offer

In examining the text of Isaiah 60:22 the ancient Rabbis noticed what they called a "contradiction" in the phrase "I, the L-RD, will hasten it in its time." The Talmud discusses this verse as follows:



R. Alexandri said: R. Joshua b. Levi pointed out a contradiction. It is written, "In its time [will the Messianic Kingdom come], whilst it is also written, "I [the L-RD] will hasten it!"-- If they are worthy, I will hasten it; if not, [it will come] at the due time.

[b.San.… Continue

Codex Phillipps 1388

Codex Phillipps 1388



This codex is one of the oldest extant copies of the Peshitta version of the Four Gospels dating to the 5th to 6th centuries. It is in the Staatsbibliothek in Berlin which sheds some important light on NT origins, especially for those of us who subscribe to Aramaic Primacy for much of the NT.



Now you may have heard from certain Peshitta Primacists that all Peshitta manuscripts agree exactly, or that the Old Syriac and Peshitta versions are totally… Continue

Nazarenes and the Name of YHWH

One major distinction between Nazarene Judaism and mainline Judaism of the first century was in regard to their usage of the name of YHWH. While mainline Judaism had limited and in some cases even banned the use of the name of YHWH, Nazarenes were at time persecuted for not participating in this ban.



Banning the Name



Although use of the Name of YHWH was clearly commonplace in Tanak times (Old Testament times), by the first century the Name was used only in the Temple. Even… Continue

The Ignatius Conspiracy

THE IGNATIUS CONSPIRACY



By James Scott Trimm





Many people have been misled into believing that Conatantine was

responsible for the corruption and Gentilization of Christianity.

While Constantine certainly added to the apostasy of early

Christianity, he was not the first. It was in fact Ignatius of

Antioch who rebelled against the Jerusalem Council, usurped their

authority, seceded from Judaism, declared the Torah to have been

abolished,… Continue

Should Judaizers Judaize?

SHOULD JUDAIZERS JUDAIZE?



By James Scott Trimm





Many Christians have come to use the term "Judaizers" to describe Paul's oponants in the book of Galatians, who by their interpretation were wrongly teaching Gentiles to keep the Jewish Law.



Sadly many in the Messianic Jewish movement have brought this term into the movement with them as part of their "baggage" left over from Christianity.



I have talked to many in the movement who used this term and… Continue
